This is one of just two Christmas cards considered unique, valuable, or relevant enough to be included in the State of Wisconsin collection. (There may be others in other collections, but I haven't searched those yet.) It was hand-made in 1945 by the woman pictured, Pat Hitchcock, and it shows her wearing the uniform she wore while serving in the Red Cross in France at the end of World War II. Later, she would become a documentary filmmaker, an author of children's books, a community organizer, and an environmental educator and activist. In the last twelve years of her life, she lived on property she donated to the State of Wisconsin as parkland in a home that served as an unofficial headquarters for the volunteers who maintain the park. She passed on in 2009, four months shy of her 90th birthday. Quite an impressive lady.
